Understanding web stats

It always sounds fantastic when you’re told by your web agency, “We’ve got all these great stats on your users. We’ll send them over to you to have a look and be amazed. And then you get them and you go, “Uhh?”

Usage Statistics can be pretty confusing until you know what the different terms mean. So here, in a nutshell, are the terms explained.

Hits
Hits aren’t the same as the number of visitors viewing the website. They actually tell you the number of server requests made. That could include the images, files associated with viewing a page, as well, as the page itself.

Impressions
Impressions, also know as ‘unique impressions’, is a much more accurate guide for the traffic generated by a website.

As a public company, shareholder communication is both highly regulated and critical to the health of our business.  The distribution of company announcements therefore has to be totally reliable and highly responsive, often at very short notice.  Over the last seven years, enotions have consistently proven that we can rely on them to provide service to the standards required by us and our regulator.
